WHERE IN BULGARIA ARE YOU? © Anthony Georgieff

Situated on the Rhodope's westernmost slope and overlooking the River Mesta Valley, this settlement has been dubbed one of Bulgaria's most romantic villages.

According to local lore, it was founded in the late Middle Ages by some citizens of Tarnovo, the then capital, who were fleeing the Ottomans or a plague epidemic, or both.

They erected huge houses and connected them with underground corridors, a marvel of engineering for the place and the time.

The village still exists, is not harshly touristified and is a favourite shooting location for film-makers.
